If a tree falls in a forest…If no Yanks fan is watching, is a Yanks’ loss really a loss? What if a team’s Pythagorean record is much better than its real record? Does that mean that team’s record is really not what it really is?
Answer: Reality sucks. Deal with it.
And this is what the Yanks have to do after an excruciating defeat like last night’s. Deal with it by moving on. The post-season is on the line. No time to feel sorry for yourself. And with that, the Yanks send out their fine, albeit struggling, young Taiwanese hurler Chien-Ming Wang, to stop the pain. Fortunately (or am I tempting fate here?) the Tigers counter with Jeremy Bonderman, who has been awful recently. Hopefully his problems continue. This is your gamer for comment. Go Yanks!
